Reed Op-ed in The Christian Science Monitor

FEBRUARY 03, 2011 by SHELDON RICHMAN

FEE President Lawrence W. Reed’s op-ed “The Deficit Americans Should Think about Most: Personal Character” is online at the The Christian Science Monitor. Here’s a teaser:

[T]he deficit that matters most is not denominated in dollars at all. Its currency is of the heart and mind. It’s a manifestation of the values with which we circumscribe our actions, our purposes, and our values. I speak of a deficit of character, which arguably is the root of all of our major economic and social troubles today.
